"Dear Bernhardt, I have a photocopy of V's LIBRO SECONDO (Roma 1647) which I could photocopy again and send by ordinary surface mail to you. My copy is poor (many pages are very dark and difficult to make out) and my scanner is very slow and…"

"My dear Bernhard, Thank you for this and I'm sorry I did not explain matters to you with greater care. What I wished to say was since you agree that 'Clearly, the absence of a piece of wood could not possibly indicate anyone's…"

"My dear Bernhard, Hurrah! - I think we are now agreed: in short, there is no more reason to attribute this instrument to Sellas than to any other Italian maker of the era. Perhaps any future liner notes, marketing, etc should make this…"

"Dear Bernhard, I'll try and answer your own questions: 1. Do you mean to say it could be a Stradivari? No, but it could be a seventeenth century Italian instrument by any other maker than Sellas. Strad's patterns and shape are…"
